We are a multicultural group of scientists and engineers, ready to change the way of thinking in the field of temperature-controlled logistics. With our background, we know well about the potential of mathematical modelling and we are bringing it to use to make sure that temperature-sensitive goods arrive safely at their destination.
Together with the pharmaceutical, perishables, logistics, and packaging industry, we want to lower wastage of temperature-sensitive products due to temperature excursions. We strive to save resources by speeding up qualification and design processes, building on digitalization and optimization. We use existing data to assess risks on shipping lanes based on measured data, not artificial temperature profiles. By always being in close contact with our customers, we keep creating and improving our tools to best match your latest needs.
We love being
Smart, Pragmatic, Data-driven
In order to really know whether a solution is the best — that is, featuring lowest risk at minimal costs — it needs to be proven by data. Not the Star Trek character. Real data. At SmartCAE, we live a philosophy of Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) with a good pinch of pragmatism. We combine material data, logger data, weather data, and simulation data into a precious source of information that serves you as solid foundation for your decision making.
We are convinced that the best solution is not necessarily the most involved mathematical model, or the flashiest figure. Our focus is on software that is easy to use, reports that are clear to follow, and computation models that are appropriate to the given tasks.
With our simulation tools, we facilitate data-driven decision making. We make valid pragmatic assumptions to accurately reflect reality and provide simulation results within a couple of minutes. This enables our customers to easily integrate our tools in their daily work. With a decade of experience in the industry, we make sure that all simulation tools are tailor-cut to the needs of temperature-controlled logistics.
Developing the Virtual Cold Chain
Founded in 2002 by Stefan Braun, we started out as service providers for all kinds of mathematical modelling. We went from the automotive industry to medical technologies and household applications. Over time, we shifted our focus more and more on the simulation of heat transfer.
Since 2014, we are developing our own software, the Virtual Cold Chain. By bundling our knowledge from the past and present, we created a platform of simulation tools to tackle the various challenges of temperature-controlled logistics.
